The real goal in Spinning Time, the Elders say, is to feel more, not do more.
The experiences you encounter during your earthwork are all symbolic. How many times have your experiences been repeated since childhood? Fulfillment is our journey. Have you travelled well thus far? In the hundreds of people I have sat with, the discussion is of spiritual quest. Is this our thought as well? The challenges have been, of course, catalyst for change. This journey is unique to each of us. Our emotions… Earth's waters… are our love. Life can be created in beauty, and some are.
Beliefs have great influences over the body and mind. Simply falling prey to your fear, stresses your adrenal glands into overload. If you believe and worry about fearful outcomes for too long, your body develops dis-ease. If you look at yourself as worthy of good outcome, using dialogue that affirms this, asking for signs of confirmation from nature, your body will respond accordingly, and the chances you'll receive your happy ending are much grater. Is it magic? It's relationship… with Self and Life.
Actually, for most of us, evolution moves us through experiences and physical mutation… and this is prophecy… humans become natural technology… supernaturals. This season we plant seeds, as they grow we move toward the positive light. The light grows us, and our seedlings, we become with Spring.
Please focus your attention on these words. This is a moment of warmth glowing. Our plant pulses to life, flowering. Focus your attention always, turn and face the light. Do this each morning and find gratitude.
"As soon as a true thought has entered our mind, it gives a light which makes us see a crowd of other objects which we have never perceived before." - Chateaubrian
"Today, I realize that I reap the harvest of my own thinking. Therefore, I choose to see the positive truth in each situation I encounter. I am master of my own mind, the gatekeeper of my thoughts. I can put whatever I want in my mind and think it. I do just that! I am free to choose! I am free! Today I know why I am alive. I am a tree of life planted by the Source. My branches are ablaze with glowing fruit. I shine my love on whoever I meet and the whole world becomes illuminated." – Rainbow Johnson.
Life presents an array of evidence for the supernatural potential of humane beings, all of us. Today, I choose to touch the sky.
An end to the fragmented Self: making decisions with organized core beliefs supporting us, looking to Source for direction and confirmation. Know and accept yourself unconditionally as you are now. There's nothing contingent on you doing anything. By practicing significant free will, you are able to say YES to things that give expression to what you value.

That we identify our values, ethics and higher thought, to which we are predisposed, and a creative power that uplifts, is generally beyond common apprehension.
To walk a path of higher empowerment, takes diligence in our search for daily support. We are freed in our pursuit – but it takes practice. Our lives with their linear confines tempt us to look back and focus on our short-comings, when all we long for is to live fluidly. We want to enjoy life. Our capacity to persevere is blocked by our consumation by the past. Change can be as simple as aligning with the seasons. We gauge our activities much as our ancestors did. We have the freedom to choose. Anxiety is a fear of loosing control, when in reality we have none. What moments define your happiness? Were you in control during their occurance?
Our transmigrational evolution has one condition: we are to experience – and in my personal opinion - it's time to enjoy life, and we are capable of rewriting our life script.
I want to dwell for a moment on the concept of the Rainbow Warrior, for this "identity" is our first step into ownership of our stories, in order to heal and return vitality takes commitment.
I don't remember who first addressed this concept with me, but I worked with it for a long time. From watching myself step out of the abused wive and victimized Indian, to working with others who carried similar patterns, my sense has been that fearful control is our greatest sabbator – and it's time to let it go – the sad story can be over and our focus can shift to fulfilling dreams.
"I understand," a woman cried, "why I am so scared and don't want to be human." Seeing herself as "not from earth," and finding support in life, kept her from recognizing her own humanity. This is what we learn as inner child work.
It is in this connection that the Star Path invariably unites us and I am asked: "How an we be both." While it may be hard to conceive, we are mixed bloods, mixed concepts, that meld to make us who we are.
It is important to understand that we are all we need to be - from both - both are integral in our perspective philosophy, and our next step is taken from this understanding. We penetrate illusion, when we hear our own voice – when we awaken to the truth of our value. We no longer separate, we heal. We accept our divinity and find safety.
